Hi all,

I currently have my associates degree in nursing and am looking to begin a RN to BSN completion program. I have a strong interest in being competitive to hopefully attend CRNA school down the line. Some RN to BSN programs offer “competency based” programs now, where essentially you graduate without a GPA. Has anyone completed one of these programs and attended CRNA school?

I would not recommend any program that is like what you are describing. It may be fine for management or whatever but applying to a competitive graduate program requires a GPA. 

Most RN-BSN programs are a money grab and the program you are referencing sounds like the worst of them. I could be wrong but I'm probably not.

Other than that it doesn't really matter where you get your BSN. I would just make sure it gives you a GPA and get all As. If you want to be picky, go with a brick and mortar school with an online option.

I agree with @Defibn'. You want an RN to BSN program that will give you an actual GPA that can be used to calculate your overall GPA. My RN to BSN program was a combination of in-classroom and online.
